In OpenRISC we set the initrd_start and initrd_end based on the symbols
we setup in vmlinux.lds.S.  However, this is not needed if we use the
generic linker description in INIT_DATA_SECTION.

Removing our own initrd setup reduces code, but also the generic code
supports loading external initrd images.  A bootloader can load a rootfs
image into memory and we can configure devicetree to load it with:

        chosen {
                bootargs = "earlycon";
                stdout-path = "uart0:115200";
                linux,initrd-start = < 0x08000100 >;
                linux,initrd-end = < 0x08200000 >;
        };
